Eastern Nutrition

One of three major foundations of traditional Chinese medicine, Eastern Nutrition focuses on the thermal properties and flavors of food; as opposed to Western Nutrition's focus on a food’s material makeup.

Energetically classified as hot, warm, cool or cold, and sweet, pungent, salty, sour or bitter, in Eastern Nutrition practices, food (and its energetic components) affects every unique body differently and is used as medicine.

Beyond your constitutional needs, an individualized Eastern Nutrition consultation will take into consideration how your body reacts to your environment, and by delving into your current eating patterns, ultimately inform you which classifications of foods you should consume to balance yin and yang energy and restore your body's natural digestive vitality.
